As surveys on the old water main in the A2 complete, we're announcing plans to replace almost a mile of faulty water mains in Lower Road and the A2.
These pipes have burst several times, causing discoloured water or loss of supply. Work will be carried out in two phases:
Phase 1 - 5 August 2019
Lower Road will be closed in sections between Frognal Lane and Station Road from 5 August until mid-December as we replace 700 metres of burst-prone mains.
A clear diversion route will be in place during this work and has been approved by Kent Highways.
Phase 2 - 2 January 2020
Temporary traffic lights will be installed on A2 London Road from 2 January 2020, as we replace another 700-metre section of old pipe. The lights will be in place along short sections of the road from Station Road to Claxfield Road, moving as we complete each section of work.
We currently expect this work to finish in early September but will use information gathered during our survey works to decide on an engineering technique and reduce the duration of the work if possible.

We're holding a public information evening on 30 July in Teynham village hall where you can discover more about our plans.
Our engineers will be on hand from 3.30pm - 6.30pm to answer any questions you might have as we prepare to replace almost a mile of burst-prone mains on Lower Road and the A2.
Work will take place over the course of the next year, starting in August 2019 and finishing by September 2020.
We look forward to seeing you there. There's no need to book, just drop in.
